The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) is an international student organization that consists of chapters in middle schools (grades 6-9). The NJHS was founded by the National Association of Secondary School Principals, and today has chapters in the United StatesPuerto Rico, other U.S. Territories, and Canada.[1] To be considered for the honor of membership applicants must reach the five standards which include leadership, citizenship, character, service, and scholarship. Applicants must have at least 5 or more hours of community service to get in. However, this is not always the case.
